Different Strokes: January 2018

WELCOME TO THE January 2018 DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE

If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see the Schedule thread here http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1302516

Please read carefully the guidelines below.

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a reference photo (or photos) or an idea or subject will be posted in a thread entitled "Different Strokes".

All entries must be for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.

Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!

Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g.

A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers.

**PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 21ST OF THE MONTH.** Much more exciting and fun to see what 'masterpieces' appear! If work is uploaded early it will be moved to a safe place until 21st.

At the end of the month the thread /discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.

**Please note, the single 'reveal' date is chosen so that we do not influence each other with our individual interpretations ...... that's the whole point of it being called 'Different Strokes'!

By all means ask questions in the thread or initiate discussion about the challenge - just don't post images!!!

The challenge this month is "In a Song"

Musicians create such amazing visual images in our minds with their music and lyrics.
Please create an artwork from the images in a song.
Please list the Musical Artist or Group and The Song Title.
Also include any lyrics that are
relevant to the artwork.
Or all or the lyrics if you so desire.

So enjoy your LP's, Cassettes, CD's, MP3's or streaming music and find something that inspires you!

Headphones not required but....they might be fun!

Narrowing it down will be the problem!

Thanks Dianna .... I'll try not to leave it too late this month!

Happy New Year!

Re: Different Strokes: January 2018

This really sounds interesting and may require a lot of thought. I love so many different types of music. I have just been watching a tribute to Doc Watson on PBS......a lot of history in music.

Re: Different Strokes: January 2018

I never listen to music when painting .. I like to concentrate on one or the other!
I think I've chosen but planning the comp might be a challenge!

Purple Haze is just too obvious. So is Don't Eat the Yellow Snow.

Re: Different Strokes: January 2018

That's interesting Maureen. I find I can concentrate longer on painting if I have something to listen to.
